New small RNA biomarker for ischemic stroke risk prediction
A biomarker to predict possible ischemic stroke.
A blood circulating non-invasive biomarker.
A Predictive method of atherosclerosis and stenosis.
This circulating biomarker can be used to detect vulnerable atherothrombotic plaque in patients with high-grade carotid artery stenosis and to predict the risk of primary and secondary ischemic stroke. This circulating biomarker might be used as a prognostic biomarker to monitor the effectiveness of the best medical treatment and for the occurrence or restenosis. Determination in serum of this biomarker could also be useful for long-term management monitoring and/or outcome prediction after carotid revascularization procedures. Moreover, this circulating biomarker has been recently proposed as a novel prognostic biomarker for non-small cell lung cancer patients receiving chemotherapy.
